AFL Victoria is proud to be partnering with VicHealth to support more Victorian women and girls to get active. We continue to see fantastic growth in female football participation, and we are excited to continue to showcase Australian football as an accessible participation option for all women and girls.

We recently asked the Victorian football community to nominate their club and outline what changes their club has made in creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for women – particularly those who haven’t exercised in a while, or who haven’t tried your club, facility or activity before.

We have been overwhelmed by the nominations and hearing the fantastic work our community clubs are doing to ensure their clubs are warm, friendly and inclusive.

The impact of a welcoming football club extends beyond the playing field. They are welcoming, family-friendly and inclusive of all in the community and are creating a positive environment for all participants.

A total of 58 clubs were nominated for the competition and we would like to acknowledge these clubs for the work that they are doing to ensure football is a sport for all.

Congratulations to our competition winner Melbourne Masters Football Club who were nominated for leading the way in making women feel safe and welcomed into a football club, and for adopting a one club mentality.

Melbourne Masters Football Club have won $1,000 Footymart voucher to help buy football equipment to support even greater participation at their club.
